I've been using my slow cooker a lot more since my baby was born. It's nice to be able to throw a few ingredients into the slow cooker in the morning and have dinner ready whenever we have time to eat. Since babies are so unpredictable this is really nice. Plus, slow cookers often make large quantities of food so we always have leftovers for the next day.
One of my favorite and easiest slow cooker meals are these slow cooker chicken tacos. There are only a handful of ingredients and it's super tasty. Dump everything into the cooker, heat on low all day, and at the end of the night chicken tacos are ready to go!
These are really flavorful and don't need much put on top of them. You can put them in hard shells or soft shells and put on your favorite toppings. I like to put on cheese, sour cream, and jalapenos.
Then we had plenty left over so the next day I made chicken nachos! In order to make the nachos all I had to do was pour tortilla chips into a baking dish, top with chicken, cheese, jalapenos, peppers, and any other toppings and bake. It takes about 10 minutes to prep and 20 minutes to cook so one big pot makes two delicious and easy meals.
